The playing-time breakdown for Seahawks running backs Thursday night: 29 of 70 offensive snaps for Chris Carson, 22 for Mike Davis and 17 for Rashaad Penny. Pete Carroll said the ankle injury that briefly sidelined Penny is a sprain but not a bad one (he returned to the game, after all). He's averaged 22 snaps and 10 carries over the past two games.

Pete Carroll called the go-ahead touchdown throw from Russell Wilson to tight end Ed Dickson "a great illustration of chemistry" between the two. The Seahawks had prepared extensively this week for the exact blitz look the Packers showed them on that play, but Dickson had the option of running his route one of two different ways depending on what Green Bay's defense did. Dickson signed with Seattle this offseason then was sidelined for all of training camp and the first six games while on the Non-Football Injury list, which meant a lot of missed time with his new quarterback. But he and Wilson were on the same page on that play. "That was really, really well done," Carroll said.

Pete Carroll said the Seahawks aren't going to push things with linebacker K.J. Wright and his troublesome knee, which suggests that he may not play next week at Carolina. Wright couldn't finish the Rams game last week and was inactive Thursday night. Carroll was pleased with how Austin Calitro played against the Packers in Wright's absence, saying that while Shaquem Griffin is pushing for playing time at that spot, Calitro has been more consistent. Mychal Kendricks, who replaced Wright earlier in the season before he was suspended, is now eligible to practice, but he has to miss two more games before he can play. Carroll said of Wright: "We're trying to get his knee back where he really feels confident that he can get back and stay back. So we're going to take our time, whatever time it takes to check that out and make a decision on it."

The Seahawks have now benefited twice from the NFL's new catch rule that was implemented this season. David Moore has been at the center of both of them. The Seahawks successfully challenged what was initially ruled an incomplete pass to Moore three weeks ago in Detroit and again Thursday night against the Packers, when the ball popped out of Moore's hands on a third-down throw late in the third quarter. Upon review, officials awarded him a 27-yard catch to extend a drive that ended with a field goal. "That's a new interpretation and that's what I was hoping they were going to see it that way," Pete Carroll said. "That was a big play at the time. We really needed that."

Doug Baldwin said this season has been "hell" dealing with injuries to each knee and his right elbow. The Rams game last week was the first time that the knee he injured in training camp wasn't holding him back. He caught his first touchdown of the season and had seven catches for 52 yards Thursday night. "Finally," he said.

According to NFL Next Gen stats, Rashaad Penny covered 82.3 yards of actual distance on his 30-yard cutback run in the first quarter. He returned after trainers tended to an ankle injury and has 46 yards on five carries. Seattle has gotten all three of its tailbacks involved. Starter Chris Carson has 10 carries for 47 yards and touchdown while Mike Davis (two catches, 24 yards) has played on third down.

The Seahawks trail the Packers 21-17 after an up-and-down first half for Seattle. The down included some of their sloppiest play on offense of the season. Chris Carson lost a fumble on the first play to set up a Green Bay touchdown, Russell Wilson missed at least one and maybe two touchdown throws, and the Seahawks committed four false starts -- at home. The Seahawks need to play cleaner over the next 30 minutes to keep any realistic playoff chances alive.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Doug Baldwin said this week that he's finally pain-free after dealing with injuries to both knees dating back to the start of training camp, telling 710 ESPN Seattle: "I've been dealing with this for four months, and I forgot what it felt like to not have pain." He's looked like his usual self so far with five catches on eight targets for 30 yards and his first touchdown of the season. Baldwin was wide open for what would have been another touchdown had Russell Wilson's pass not sailed over his head.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Rashaad Penny is questionable to return because of an ankle injury. He went out after a tremendous run in which he cut back several times and picked up 30 yards. If there's a position where Seattle could afford an injury, it's at running back. Chris Carson started and lost a fumble on the first play from scrimmage. It'll be him and Mike Davis unless/until Penny comes back.

The Seahawks are 7-1 in Thursday night games under Pete Carroll. Here's how important it is to make that 8-1 tonight: according to ESPN's Football Power Index, Seattle's chances of reaching the playoffs, currently at 30 percent, would be 41 percent with a win over the Packers and they would drop all the way to 13 percent with a loss.

"Full speed and ready to go" is how Pete Carroll described Chris Carson yesterday. Carson is back after missing the Rams game.

The Seahawks will have every starter available against the Packers other than linebacker K.J. Wright. He is in active, as expected, after being listed as doubtful because of the knee injury that has bothered him all season. Seattle's other inactives: defensive end Dion Jordan, running back C.J. Prosise, cornerback Neiko Thorpe, guard Ethan Posic, defensive tackle Poona Ford.

Best bets for Packers-Seahawks

The Seahawks are favored at home against the Packers on Thursday night. Will they cover? Here are our best bets for the game.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

The Seahawks will have every starter available for their Thursday night game against the Packers except for linebacker K.J. Wright, who's listed as doubtful because of his troublesome knee. Pete Carroll left the door open for Wright to play depending on how he looks pregame, but it doesn't seem likely after he didn't practice this week. Defensive end Dion Jordan is one of four players listed as questionable as he deals with a recurring knee issue of his own. He was a full participant the last two days, which bodes well for his chances of playing.

The Seahawks' home game against the 49ers in Week 13, originally scheduled for "Sunday Night Football," has been flexed out of prime-time. It goes from a 5:20 p.m. PST kickoff on NBC to a 1:25 p.m. kickoff on FOX. It was a logical choice to schedule Richard Sherman's return to Seattle as the Sunday night game, but the matchup lost much of its prime-time appeal with the Seahawks (4-5) and 49ers (2-8) both below .500. Chargers at Steelers will take its place on NBC. Seattle will have two more prime-time games remaining after their game against the Packers Thursday night: Week 14 against the Vikings (Monday night) and Week 16 against the Chiefs (Sunday night).

Pete Carroll said Chris Carson is "full speed and ready to go" for Thursday night's game against the Packers. Same for D.J. Fluker, who also missed Sunday's loss to the Rams. Making sure that Carson and Fluker would be available for this game factored into the decision to not play them Sunday.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

The Seahawks list linebacker K.J. Wright (knee) as doubtful for tomorrow's game against the Packers. Four players are questionable: defensive end Dion Jordan, safeties Delano Hill and Mo Alexander, and cornerback Neiko Thorpe. Running back Chris Carson and right guard D.J. Fluker are expected to play along with every starter other than Wright.
